Naltex is a bi-planar thermoplastic netting that offers pleat support, separation nets and cartridge sleeving for the filtration industry. Specifically, Naltex serves as a spacer component in spiral wound and reverse osmosis filtration systems. Additionally, it is used in a range of applications including food service and mechanical protection for corrosion coating on underground pipelines.
Naltex is made by the process of extruding through counter-rotating die heads. Nets with new resins, varied strand count and cross section, and a range of strand angles are available, offering different looks, feels, strengths and additional functionality. Fire-retardant nets are also available. Naltex nets are custom-developed to meet specific industrial performance requirements for demanding applications in the automotive, filtration and industrial markets.
